West Baden Springs Hotel Gardens
The gardens at West Baden instantly make you feel like royalty. Complete with the original Apollo Spring and walking trails, you'll want to take more than one shot.
West Baden Springs Hotel Atrium
The atrium is truly breath-taking and one of the most, if not THE most, popular photo-worthy spot at French Lick Resort. Not only is this an unforgettable photo spot, comfortable seating, calming music and a fireplace all set the ambiance even more. You'll want to sit down and take this magical moment in as long as you can.
The Veranda at West Baden Springs Hotel
Before you make your way to the gardens, the veranda is a quintessential spot to relax in a rocking chair and enjoy a cup of coffee or ice cream cone and soak in the beauty of the property.
The Trolley at French Lick Resort
The trolley at French Lick Resort first operated in 1903 and its history spans many decades. The winter of 2014 kicked off the new season of the trolley and it is nothing short of amazing. Operating 7am-10pm, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, the trolley at French Lick takes you on a scenic ride to and from French Lick Springs Hotel and West Baden Spring Hotel.
The Veranda at French Lick Springs Hotel
This has been the central meeting spot at French Lick Resort for decades-rocking chairs, an ice cream shop and the beautiful view of the French Lick Springs Hotel front lawn, this picturesque place is a hopping spot especially when warmer weather hits. You'll want to gather the entire family here during your stay to kick back and relax in history.
French Lick Springs Hotel Lobby
The lobby at French Lick Springs Hotel has a way of taking you back to classic elegance. Better yet, it's just steps away from shopping outlets and fine and casual dining outlets.
The Gardens at French Lick Springs Hotel
Walking through these gardens is the cherry on top of a nice stroll across property. Here you will find Pluto Spring, which used to be the bottling house to bottle Pluto Water--the ever famous laxative natural water product from the early 20th century.
The Donald Ross Course at French Lick Resort
This classic course designed by iconic architect Donald Ross, underwent a $5 million restoration in collaboration with the Donald Ross Society. After your game or visit, check out Hagen's Clubhouse where you can have a delicious meal and drink while enjoying arguably one of the best spots to catch a sunset on property. Any day year round, you can catch a stunning view.
